BBC, Joseph Goebbels & Vince Cable
Which is why the BBC, not any of the parties from the Greens through to the BNP, is the greatest threat to democracy and freedom in Britain. The BBC, despite a legal duty in its Charter to "balance" is provably more than 99% corruptly lying and censoring in the cause of totalitarian fascism, government parasitism, war crimes and on occasion racial murder, child rape, genocide and worse.
They don't even attempt to deny that. And because the broadcasting regulator uses them as a template and the press do to (being dependent on the state for much advertising money, without which they are bankrupt) our entire mainstream media are as corrupt as almost anywhere in the world.
Thank Ghod for the internet.
The corollary is "lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie" - that is to say that if the BBC totalitarian monopoly were ended and we had free media able to allow the truth equal debating time, the entire corrupt political structure could not long survive. Free media will unleash the greatest enemy of our corrupt politics.
This was brought up by an EU Referendum discussion of Vince Cable denouncing the Tories for now, at least officially, promising a referendum. This being the same Mr Cable who, like all his equally corrupt LD colleagues, went into the last election with a manifesto promise of an EU referendum (applied as a sop because they had immediately broken their manifesto promise of an EU referendum for the Lisbon Treaty). To demonstrate the highest LD standard of integrity he and they immediately broke that promise too and are getting away with the media airbrushing it out of existence,
